Constipation is another common condition that can affect different people for different reasons. As a rule, if you pass stool less than three times per week, it is likely a doctor will diagnose you with constipation. If you notice a change in your bowel movements, that they are occurring less than usual or the stool is harder to pass, you are probably constipated. For the most part, constipation is due to diet, but in rarer cases, it could be due to an obstruction.
